DIY Family Tree Shadow Box Tutorial
Use the leaf shape paper punch to make 30 leaves from your green cardstock.
Cut your twigs into “Y” shapes. You will need 14 Y’s, plus one large section to serve as a trunk.
Arrange your twigs in the shadow box, stacking the smaller Y’s on top of each other. Once you are satisfied with your tree shape, glue the twigs into place.
Each one of your leaves represents a member of your family. Write their names on the leaves, and add them to the tree. Start with the husband and wife at the bottom, and work your way up the family line.
To see the full tutorial make sure to watch the below video.
